Lions and tigers and feltidermy, Oh my!
I know I’ve been a bit absent from the blog again the past couple of weeks, but now you can see one reason why. Alright, yes, I’ve also been enjoying the spring we’ve been having…but also creating! For about the last week the new desktop feltidermy pieces have had most of my attention.
The desktop felidermy came about from a custom request. The request was for 2 tigers (pictured above) looking like they are leaping out of the plaque. Well, of course I loved this idea, but I had to figure out how to make it work. I spent a couple days just researching images of tigers leaping, jumping, diving and well anything but standing still. After I finally had that stuck in my head I started building my pattern, once I had it ready all I had to do was get to cutting and stitching. I started stitching the first tiger and the shape was exactly what I wanted, they were just a bit small for the size I needed.
*light bulb moment*
Now I just had to figure out how to make them stand on their own. Notice how I said “just” haha… I thought about how to make them stand as I was stitching, browsing the hardware store, walking the dog, cooking dinner, watching the new season opener of Doctor Who, I think even while sleeping. I finally did figure it out and I was still able to attach the plush to the wood as usual, the stand just cover my hardware for attaching. Believe me, these guys and their stands are not separating!
So yeah, that’s what I’ve been up to…Now to hope that everyone else loves them as much as I do! You can find them in my Etsy shop.
I hope you are all having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
This feltidermy is the first collaboration between myself and my husband, Shannon. He does sketches that he calls sketchmonsters and paintings too. This feltidermy is based on his alien sketchmonster painting, pictured above with the feltidermy! We worked out the pattern together, then Shannon painted the plaque and I stitched up the monster head and mounted it.
We hope to be doing another one in the near future. You can find the Alien Monster Feltidermy by clicking on the photo at the top of this post or in my shop!
I’m having a hard time adjusting to the time change this week. Today I was up at 4:15! I don’t think my brain is processing this “spring forward” thing correctly. *yawn*
I hope you’re all adjusting well. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Today I introduced the first Unibunny Feltidermy to my Shop!
The unibunny is a small woodland creature from the island of Mythalogia. They claim to have many magical powers that come from the horn on their small heads. Some of these claims involve the creation of moss, and rainbows. The unibunnies also claim to be responsible for the creation of the first jelly bean.
* No actual unibunnies were harmed in the making of this feltidermy*
I’m so happy to be back to feeling like myself again! I’ve been fighting a cold for the last month…finally this week I seem to be over it (knock on wood).
Tomorrow I hope to have a new collection of Feltidermy Brooches available!
Hooray for for Spring being on the way, colds going away and the start of many new creations!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

Everyone is always interested in where people work. So, today I thought I would post a peek into my work space, where I do all of this computer fun stuff from.
I know, not real exciting, huh? But, that little green chair is where I am sitting right now writing this. It is where I do all my photo editing, listings for my shop, and hanging out on Twitter. What I am excited about today, is that I finally got my “Etsy art wall” hung. I hope to add more to it as I collect more art from my favorites on Etsy!
Clockwise from top left:

I plan to rotate feltidermy on the wall, just so I can enjoy them a little before they go off to their new homes. One day I hope to fill that whole wall with Etsy art!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your little peek into my workspace. I hope you all have a great weekend!
